Yup I am new here, hello to you all! On to my problem, About a week ago my ability to connect to my home network (or any wireless network for that matter) came to a halt. Upon investigation I discovered that while the wireless NIC was operational the radio was turned off. After a bit of research I discovered that Windows 7 (or Broadcom) has the ability to turn the wireless NIC's radio off if it detects a physical NICs connection and activity. Apparently the ability to turn this function on and off is located within the Advanced settings of the Broadcom 4313 driver, it's supposed to be under the setting "Disable Upon Wired Connect ". Unfortunately there is no such setting either with the 2010 driver or the latest 2011 driver. I have tried the setting under the Windows Mobility Center,but the "turn wireless on" button is subdued. I also tried the Broadcom supplicant (Wireless Configuration Utility) and there was nowhere within the application to turn it on. I have also tried the small application in this thread http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/hp-slate-500/36740-wifi-toggle-systray-utility.html But my wireless NIC's Radio is still in an "off" state. I am hoping someone here has had, or heard about this and knows of a solution. As I am running on "E" with ideas how to fix this (Short of sending it back to HP). Thank you! **** Post #6 has the download link for the version of HP's Wireless Assistant that works with the Slate.
